NFL Draft: Will the New England Patriots look for Tom Brady's heir?

Gronkowski will return to the Patriots for a ninth season in 2018, the All-Pro tight end announced via Instagram on Thursday.

The 144th staging of The Run for the Roses will not feature the horse named after New England Patriots tight end, Rob Gronkowski. "I'm ready for another championship run".

The towering tight end's future has been the subject of intense scrutiny after he indicated he was mulling retirement in the wake of February's Super Bowl defeat to the Philadelphia Eagles in Minneapolis. The return of several key players from injury will help, but finding rookies who can contribute immediately is near the top of the team's wish list this offseason. Still, New England would probably have to come up some to take Jackson.

ESPN's Adam Schefter followed up Gronk's post with a tweet reporting that Gronkowski officially won't be traded. This news allows the Patriots to focus on other positions of need such as tackle, cornerback, linebacker and of course finding Tom Brady's replacement.

Gronkowski made it clear that he just needed to step back after the long 2017 season and assess where he was at physically.

I am aware of the serious issues within the country, but I also know that it is a attractive place filled with incredibly warm and welcoming people.

Last season Gronkowski caught 69 passes for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns.

Add to that the usual offseason speculation about the long-term future of their 40-year-old, five-time Super Bowl-winning star man and Pats fans have a couple of exciting nights ahead. I'm going to keep working hard, and I'm excited for the 2018 season.

A new report pointed the finger at at new contract.

One can only assume that the Patriots will do right by Brady, arguably considered to be the greatest to ever play his position.

How does Rob Gronkowski make his money?
